We utilize EPA- and HUD-acceptable products that can be applied in situations where other methods are not feasible, such as in public halls, stairwells, and fire escapes.

Proper containment and cleanup


We take the time and care necessary to set up dust-containment barriers before any work begins and thorough clean up is a critical part of every job. With an emphasis on protecting tenants and their belongings, we minimize the disturbance to paint surfaces, and to their daily lives, and will leave you with a safe and pristine environment.

With you every step of the way


As building owners and managers ourselves, we are particularly sensitive to all of the aspects and nuances surrounding each lead project. We evaluate all the circumstances of your situation before determining the most appropriate methods and providing you with a proposal. Factors to consider are: exposure to building occupants, worker safety and waste disposal. The team at Jerome Environmental Services handles the whole scope of your project: filing for postponements, abatement operations, third-party dust wipe clearance, and certification with New York City agencies, including HPD and the Department of Health. We tailor each project plan to an individual client’s specific situation and determine scope on a job-by-job basis.
